Hi,

I have upgraded my system to Core i7 - 2600K and MoBo - ASUS P8Z68 V-Pro.
I'm planning to upgrade my Corsair 4 Gb RAM to G-Skill RAM.
Can anyone tell me what is the maximus RAM speed supported by the Core i7 2600K (by overclocking the RAM also).

Thanks...

The Intel spec limit is 21 GB/s which translates to approximately DDR3-2600. Now unless you're looking to OC >4.5GHz then IMO stick with a 2x4GB or 4x4GB Matched Kit of DDR3-1600 CAS 8/9 @ 1.50v.
